Ingredients & Cooking


  • 1 beef Strip Steak, Boneless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 slices French bread, cut 1 inch thick
  • 12 arugula leaves
Horseradish Whip
  • 2 teaspoon horseradish
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoon chives


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Season steak evenly on both sides with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and place steak in skillet; cook strip steak 12 to 15 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove steak and set aside to rest.
